Focus Drives are microscope attachments placed on the microscope to allow a fine-tuned & broader range of mobility. A motorised focus drive allows an automated process flow within microscopy with not only motorised X- and Y-axes but also an automatic adjustment of the Z-axis.

MFD series focuses on supplementing Z-axis positioning; easily retrofitted onto the fine focus knob on the microscope.
MFD-2 holds higher stability than MFD series by using the additional adaptation of the base plate. This series is also a more customisable series; different microscope brands (and even individual microscope) holds different compatibility. Please contact us to find out more about the compatibility.

Piezo Z is a unique stage that achieves high resolution at fast sample positioning. It focuses on its samples through moving its sample dynamically and precisely along the optical axis, with adjustments within a few milliseconds and with accuracy within µm range.

MA 42 is also designed for supplementary motorisation in the z-axis. It is installed by removing the fine focus knob from the microscope with the MA 42, together with a unique coupling, is retrofitted directly to the shaft of the fine focus. It is thus preventing any slippage or loss of steps.
